After teaching at various Young Artist Programs as well as running a University course, I have learned that each actor is unique in their best approach to a text or a role, and that the methods used are best tailored to the individual: for some text analysis is the best way forward; others need to understand a role through its physicality; with others yet it is best to start on an emotional level by studying the character’s relationships to others and to their world. Ultimately I have come up with my own method, which encompasses all of the above, and provides the actor with series of useful tools, that will be useful depending on the play/character/audition.
I am a professional stage director (recent credits include Juilliard’s Rinaldo in Concert and Syracuse Opera’s Don Giovanni); as an assistant and revival director, I have worked at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opernhaus Zurich, Santa Fe Opera, Washington National Opera and more. Having worked with so many different singers and directors has allowed me to develop my coaching, teaching and character work skills - for actors and (in particular) for singers. I was also the Directing Fellow at the Juilliard School for two consecutive years, where I learned from Stephen Wadsworth in the postgraduate program. I recently taught an acting course at Montclair University, and have been teaching privately for years. As a director, I have also worked with a variety of young artists - for instance at the Glimmerglass Festival and the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Program. Being a French and Austrian native, I also specialize in French and German diction. For full resume, visit (concealed information)
